    Major League Baseball

    Can't find where the original thread went, but I figured we could start a new one since the 2008 season is coming up soon. Spring training is less than a month away, opening day 2008 is on March 31 (yay it starts early this season). I can't think of who else is playing that day except my boys, the Mets. So what is anyone else's thoughts?? Who's your team & how far to do think (or want them to) they will get??

    As for the Mets, it couldn't get any sweeter this offseason. I mean Omar Minaya made a few moves here & there (my 2nd favorite to Santana being getting rid of Mota, my not so favorite trading Milledge, but at least we have 2 catchers that can throw now), but Johan Santana in a Mets uni is something I didn't see after the 2007 season ended. Not only that, but not having to give up Fernando Martinez seemed almost unreal to me as well!!! Only thing I think they should do now is sign another pitcher that can eat innings & add stability to the back of the rotation. That particular pitcher would be Livan Hernandez (El Duque's half brother). It's become obvious that El Duque is way too injury prone to stay in the rotation & moving him to the pen could bolster the pen as well. If there's anything else I'm more excited about than seeing Johan pitch, it's the return on Duaner Sanchez.

    My expectations as far as the rotation:
    Johan will get 18 wins & pitch the Mets 1st ever no hitter.
    Pedro will get 12,13 wins, Johan takes a lot of pressure off of him since he doesn't have to be the ace.
    Maine will get 16 wins.
    Perez will get 14 wins, may eclipse 200 k's if he stays consistent. He's got one of the nastiest sliders I have ever seen.
    If Livan comes along, 11 wins, the least of the rotation, but along with Johan, pitches over 200 innings.
    Pelfrey/El Duque is too hard for me to predict because Duque seems to be out longer each year on the DL & Pelfrey got off to a pretty bad start, but near the end of the season looked much better...

    I'll find it and have Syntax move it over here, but yea Johan in a Met's uniform, who knew. I thought for sure he'd end up on the Yankees or Red Sox.

    ohhhh yess he looks damn good in orange and blue...great year to be a Met fan.

    As for Livan they have already said they are not goin after him or any other pitcher, they are content with wat they have (can u blame them?) main reason why they arent goin for him is cuz there bullpen already is jam packed they have 5 guys fighting for that last spot come spring training. Also to add if u look at the stats of last season El Duque was there best pitcher.
    Yea i was pretty bummed when they traded Lastings also but hey for wat we got it doesnt look THAT bad.
    And keep Fernando and still gettin Johan was a complete shock to me but i am SOO glad it happened

    $137.5 million over 6 years, they can't afford to go after any other pitchers. That is just f***ing stupid, he's not worth that much, no player deserves to be paid as much as he's going to be and as much as A-rod gets paid. Win a Championship then I won't be as hostile.

    I'm really excited this year, thanks to the Mets, my favorite team hands down. Last year was really depressing at the end, so I'm hoping they'll take care of the Phils and quiet all my annoying friends that like them.

    Haha, poor BLS, hopefully the Fish surprise you this year and finish around .500, .

    (Go Padres)

    Earlier I heard that Schilling might be out for most of if not the entire year, thoughts?

    Can we stop talking about Pedro and the cockfight? I could care less, PETA can kiss my ass, and people need to stop thinking the U.S. is the moral compass for the world. Get the f*** over yourselves. (Sorry people piss me off.)
